In a dark moment, you see someone very differently. Even though everything afterwards appears to be fine, you’re not convinced. Upon reflection, you realise that people have their flaws, and nothing is perfect. If you want to continue to be involved with this person, you must learn to accept this side. But if that’s something you just can’t do, then walk away.
